When this paper pad and ephemera pack arrived at our offices, it was love at first sight. The flowers were dreamy and romantic. The metallic foiled details were perfectly placed. The textures and patterns were delicate and beautiful. It was everything I could have dreamed of. I just had to make a set of cards with the paper.
